Be Sun Wise! It’s a Skin Game!

  • Sunwise Logo
    Did you know? Your skin is the largest organ of your body. We take it for granted, don’t we? Yet it works hard, holding everything together, literally! When we’re hot, it excretes sweat to help cool us off. All of the millions of nerve endings in our skin send us signals that tell us about the world around us. But our skin can give us trouble when we fail to protect it from injury from the sun.

    Too much sun can weaken your immune system. While the incidence of many cancers is falling, the incidence of Melanoma, deadly Skin Cancer, is rising faster than four of the most common cancers combined. In the U.S., one person dies every hour from Skin Cancer. The sun can cause eye damage like cataracts and melanomas of the eye area. Always wear wrap-around shades that fit close to your head with UV protection. Save your face with a wide-brimmed hat. Sun damage makes you look old before your time. Check the expiration date on your sun screen. Apply it to all exposed skin when outdoors. Re-apply if sweating heavily and/or in/out of water. Skin is about 70% water. Keep your skin and your insides in good shape; drink plenty of water.
